How the Fast Fourier Transform Got its Name
May/June 1971 (vol. 4 no. 3)
pp. 15
T.S. Huang, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
Everyone agrees that the Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) has revolutionized digital signal processing. However, no one knows with certainty the true history of the FFT. I had been as confused as everybody else until one day when I found in an old book store at Harvard Square a manuscript by Kipling which contained some unpublished Just-So Stories, one of which was entitled, "How the Fast Fourier Transform Got its Name." The time has now come to publish this historical account to quiet all rumors and hearsay.
